Skunk Wedding and Small Business Spotlight (HKNA Newsletter)

     We were invited to a skunk wedding put on by our local skunk rescue. I was inspired to write about the event and send it to a local newsletter. I don't know if they will have room to publish it, but either way I'm happy to have written it.

Skunk Wedding Ceremony at Bula Cafe

               On Sunday, January 30, 2022, Pet Skunk Advocates and Rescue hosted the first skunk wedding in Historic Kenwood. The bride, Delilah Skunk and groom, Teddy Skunk, donned fancy attire and exchanged vows in front of approximately fifty human guests. The vows, translated by the officiant, were sweet, loving, and quirky. After the ceremony, cake was served at the reception while a live guitarist played for guests and skunks alike. This event was held at the popular and whimsical Bula Café located at 2500 5th Ave N.

The president of the organization, Kat Wysocki, is busy attending year-round events in St. Petersburg and around the state of Florida. Their booth at the recent Shopapalooza at Vinoy Park, in late November 2021, was a smash hit, having a line to hold and cuddle skunks all day long.

               Teddy and Delilah are excited to start their new life together as husband and wife. Donations to the non-profit can be made on their website: https://katspsar.com/ or https://katspsar.com/teddy-and-delilah; the PayPal donate button is located the bottom of the page.


 

Small Business Spotlight

Also at Bula Café during the skunk ceremony was the Kenwood resident owned food truck, Kettle and Pit. Kettle and Pit serves a variety of savory soul foods such as gumbo and portobello mushroom.  If you see Kettle and Pit at your next rescue animal wedding or festival, make sure to say hello to your neighbor and give his tasty gumbo a try!
